  • And we are solving load shedding with coal power plants. I wish we as nation could understand the situation we are in regarding carbon emission and effects it would have on our climate and economy.

    • Even if Pakistan shift to 100% cleaner energy the temperature will still rise due to our two neighbors India and China being the leading Coal Consumers in the world with 2.5 billion population combined.With India fulfilling 70% of its Energy needs with Thermal Plants.And China 80% respectively,Now thats a HUGE SHARE in world total consumption.Also World Coal Consumption is expected to increase till 2040s.
      For Pakistan it is compulsory to build Gas and Coal Power plants as we don’t have the funds to produce all of our Energy Shortfall(about 6000+MW) with Renewable Energy Sources.
      For the time being we could build and operate these Thermal power plants and if in the future our Economic conditions improve we could the phase them out with Solar and Wind plants
      Also the thermal power plants being built by China in Pakistan are the most Efficient Ones in the entire region, they fully comply with International Regulations and Safety and much cleaner than the old ones in the region
